WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University’s Commercial Agriculture Center will host a free webinar on the state of carbon markets and the implications and opportunities for agricultural producers at 12:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 24.
The webinar will focus specifically on the opportunities and challenges of carbon markets in U.S. agriculture for row crop producers.
“Many agricultural producers are now questioning the industry’s potential role in carbon sequestration,” said James Mintert, professor and director of the Center for Commercial Agriculture. “During this webinar, Nathanael Thompson, Carson Reeling and I will answer some of the questions that concern growers and explore some of the opportunities for row crop producers interested in sequestering carbon on their farmland. Carbon markets are changing rapidly and we will also discuss how things might change over the next few years. “
Thompson and Reeling are assistant professors in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue. Registration is free on the website of the Commercial Agriculture Center at purdue.ag/webinaire062421.
After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email with a link to view the live webinar at the scheduled time. Those who cannot participate live can register to receive a follow-up email after the webinar to download the slides and view the recording.
